Recipe by Manami

Submitted by Thelma Ziemmarmann of Newton, Ks. at the Pillsbury Bake-Off 37 (Dallas,1996) $ 2000.00 winner. This pastry is embedded with nuggets of apricot and pecans. Which makes this gooey warm pull-apart welcome at any breakfast or brunch table. We served this at an afternoon meeting and as usual, we had to pass out copies of the recipe!
